Bio

Nearing towards the end of 2016, Cartel began uploading demo singles and remixes online which showcased his raw talent; and it slowly gained traction. He soon progressed to releasing studio quality records after crafting his sound; which has secured him with his own, unique audience.

Cartel has just released his highly anticipated debut album, The Cartel Baby, which has received positive feedback from radio presenters at Triple J & local blog, The Local Frequency. TLF highlighted that Cartel “offered a range of vibrant sonics reminiscent of the global acts Tyla Yaweh, NAV, and Yung Pinch".

Production great, flow solid! Some hip hop cliches in there that I'm not 100% convinced are your real lived experience, but as far as song craft goes you're getting tight!!

Kevin spilling his heart out on this one and you feel it. I'm sure many are finding support through this too.

Catch a vibe for the Posty and co influences here. Kevin keeps it lowkey and drowsy like he's been riding around all night hoping you'll text back.
